Marcus Harris has been outsmarted by Stuart Broad’s well-directed short delivery as England draw first blood, thanks largely to a sublime, goalkeeper-like catch behind the stumps by Jos Buttler. Harris was cramped for room as the bumper took the glove on its way to Buttler, who lunged across to his right to pluck a stunner. England have given away only 7 in the first 8 overs, making life difficult for the Australian openers. And the reward has duly come as a result of the pressure.
